The study investigated the effects of constructivist problem based learning technique on the academicachievement of physics students with low ability levels in Nigeria secondary schools. Pre-test-Post-test controlgroup design was adopted for the study. A purposive sampling technique was used to select 2 schools out of 40-co-educational secondary schools in Taraba state. 105 senior secondary school II physics students were used forthe study. Physics Achievement Test (PAT) and physics Ability Level Test (PALT) were used to collect data.The kuder-Richardson coefficient of internal consistency for PAT and PALT were 0.72 and 0.76 respectively.Three hypotheses were tested at p
